The environment belongs to us all and Australians want to do their bit to protect their local environment for future generations.

A broad range of organisations will be eligible to put forward projects to their Federal Member of Parliament. This includes community clubs (including Lions Clubs, Rotary Clubs, sports clubs), not-for-profit organisations such as Indigenous organisations, Landcare groups (including bushcare, coastcare, ‘friends of’ groups), schools, and other community and conservation groups.

Community groups are encouraged to contact their local Member of Parliament to express interest in receiving funding under the program. MPs will be responsible for nominating projects in consultation with the community once guidelines are released and the program formally opens.
